One Moment Please - We make progress when we buy local - 1/24/11

Today marks the second consecutive year in which we have dedicated our resources to sharing the "State of the Union" for Fillmore County in what has been titled the Progress Edition.

I would like to thank all of the businesses who supported this section, providing a platform for telling stories about people trying to make a difference. These are people striving to stimulate economic development opportunities for their community, creating jobs along the way.

We need people who are willing to take chances today more than ever before.

Our economic recovery will require visionaries with their head in the clouds and their feet on the ground.

Something interesting I discovered as I read the stories about business ventures taking place in each community was the relationship between each of these business owners. Many of these businesses are dependent upon each other's success, possibly reciprocating with the mutually beneficial exchange of products and services.

We need all of these businesses to be successful if we want to be successful in helping our communities thrive -- not just survive. When one business struggles, we all feel it. Sometimes it may not be so transparent.

Please show your support for these businesses as much as possible. After all, they are taking a chance on us. They are putting themselves out there to provide products and services that we need.

Buy local and everybody wins!

Posted in Commentary

Americans seem to constantly ask the pressing question: of "When will economic recovery be accomplished?" We are not patient people and demand instant return to economic stability.

A New Year's resolution for politicians

Fri, Jan 7th, 2011
Posted in Commentary

The last few years have been especially tough for many and for the country as a whole. I don't know if the last decade has yet been named, but "turbulent" would sum it up. We have endured two wars, 9/11 and the worst recession in history.
